I stopped here on a Saturday in March right when they opened at noon. Grabbed a flight, which subsequently led to a pint afterwards.
Kevin, the bartender was awesome, personable, very knowledgeable about beer, other cool beer bars in the city, history, and vocabulary (he used the word avuncular, I just looked it up!).
My trip coincided with the end of NY Beer Week, so I had some leftover drafts, Hopslam, 2 Kuhnhenn beers, locals from Barrier, Green Port, and Great South Bay, Founders Smoked Porter.
The place is decorated really cool, tall shelves with stuff for sale on the lower half, empty cool bottles on the higher shelves that were either shared at the bar, or donated by locals. A bar with 15 to 20 seats, 15-20 taps, then coolers line both walls towards the back of the store, with beer to go, or to crack on premises, for a small corking fee.
They have a TV, but it wasn't on. Cool sound system, Led Zeppelin was the listening choice for my visit.
No kitchen, but cheese plates and various snacks available, hot pretzels, olives.
Odd I mention the bathroom, but it was clean, and a lot of cool beer-related posters adorn the walls.
Overall, this place was great. We all dream about opening a beer bar someday, and this place is a good benchmark for what I'd want to do if I was ever able to. I'd make it a point to stop by if you are in the area.
